WHEATON, Ill. (AP) -A former suburban Chicago police officer
who pleaded guilty to charges he stole $30,000 from a charity for
fallen officers has been sentenced to two years of probation.
Scott Webb, who worked for the Woodridge Police Department, also
was sentenced to 180 days in jail, but was credited time already
served. He agreed to make restitution to Illinois Concern of Police Survivors. Prosecutors accused the 40-year-old Webb of using stolen money to pay for a lifestyle of women, motorcycles and alcohol. They called the charity Webb’s “own personal slush fund.”
DuPage County prosecutors sought a six-year sentence for Webb,
who was a fugitive for five months before being apprehended in
October. However, in handing down the sentence, Judge Kathryn
Creswell said Webb led an exemplary life prior to the theft.
